Whitstable Castle

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside – especially when we’re there taking wedding photographs in a stunning location!

We are spoilt for choice for waterside locations around Kent, and perhaps the most famous is Whitstable; also known for oysters, the food of love.

On Saturday, we had the privilege of photographing a very personal ceremony at Whitstable Castle, so where better to choose for our next venue feature?

The celebration was for twin sisters Julie Bentley and Pam Barnes and their husbands, and it was a fantastic day.

Julie and her husband Karl were renewing their vows for their 25th wedding anniversary, while Pam and husband Fred reaffirmed their vows with a humanist hand-fasting ceremony. The event was made even more special as Pam and Fred had travelled from New England, USA, to take part.

The castle itself is set in three acres of lovely grounds, planted to perfection and providing a range of options for romantic wedding photographs. Inside is equally exquisite, refurbished and redecorated in the original Regency style with chandeliers of crystal that are cleaned until they sparkle.

But that’s not all – it is set just back from Tankerton Slopes, a lovely green beauty spot leading down to the sea. If the beach plays an important part in your life, why not feature it on your wedding day with some photos there too? The Whitstable sunsets are legendary and would make a truly perfect backdrop.

Back inside, you can choose the right room for your needs, from the Mallandain which seats up to 50 people for a ceremony to the Miles Room or Graystone Library for up to 20 people. The Orangery is also available for an extra charge, by special arrangement.

There’s an added feel-good factor too, as all income from events at the castle support the work of The Whitstable Castle Trust, protecting and preserving the venue for future generations.

We love: The location – the beach is just over the road and the gardens are stunning whatever the season.

Why not?: Pretend you are queen of the castle – for the day, at least – and use opulent colours or a Queen of Hearts theme.

Winters Barn

Kent is known as the garden of England and we are surrounded by stunning rural landscapes so it’s no surprise that many of our brides choose a country theme for their wedding day.

If you are looking for a rustic venue, Winters Barns near Canterbury could be the perfect place, with its beamed ceilings and seven acres of beautiful grounds – perfect for photographs!

The barns are just outside the city and only a few minutes’ drive from the A2, with easy access from London and the south east. But the venue feels a world away thanks to its secluded location and tranquil atmosphere.  

The decor is neutral so couples can make it their own and if the British weather is not on your side fear not – everything is in one place so there is no need to go outside. With some venues, that can mean a challenge for photographers but at Winters Barns the combination of the natural light and our skills means you won’t be disappointed.

If you want to take advantage of the surroundings, there is also a cart barn licensed for outdoor civil ceremonies that also makes a great backdrop for photographs.

Winters Barns is the perfect venue for a celebration

We love: The grounds, the fact that the barns are heated in winter and air conditioned in summer, and the always-cheerful wedding planner Liz.

Why not?: Use contemporary flowers and bright colours for a funky country feel – you could plan activities such as welly wanging or giant garden games to keep guests entertained.
